There’s a new fighter joining to the roster of Soulcalibur 6 and for some players it’s going to be nostalgic. Who is it? It’s none other than Haohmaru. Yes, it’s the same character from the Samurai Shodown franchise.

Haohmaru is arriving to Soulcalibur 6 as a guest fighter as a part of Soulcalibur's Season Pass. Despite being in a new game, this master swordsman brings with him his iconic fighting style that is all too familiar, especially for those familiar with the Samurai Shodown series. So expect to see him with his Max Rage, Power Slash, and even Rage Explosion. When he is Soul Charged, he is able to release a projectile, one of the few players to do so in the game.

Haohmaru has three Critical Edge attacks. The first is Judgment Blast Slash where he releases a series of five Kogetsu Zan slashes and then ends it with a powerful Kogetsu Zan. Then there is Flame of the Conqueror where he delivers a strong slash that knocks his opponent down. Finally there is Lightning Edge where Haohmaru performs a lightning fast slash.

Haohmaru is now available for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
